Heh, what can you say? Read some of the glowing nominations at the links below. It’s pure self aggrandizement wrapped in a delusional comedy. I got the biggest chuckle from seeing skepticalscience.com listed as an “organization”. Mike Mann’s nomination letter #5 link in individual nominees is a hoot also. Lest some think this is some sort of sour grapes, it isn’t. It is simply humorous that only one type of communications apparently passes muster and the nominators are all part of the same club. Contrast that process to this one.
Excellence deserves acknowledgment. Every year we honor one person and one organization for their excellence as climate change communicators. Honorees are identified through an open nomination and democratic voting process. Honorees and nominees from previous years can be found here: 2009 and 2010.
